House Hetherspoon is a house of landed knights sworn to Casterly Rock.[1] The name and location of their keep is unknown.

Neither their arms or their words appear in the books, but according to semi-canon sources they blazon their shield as an oak spoon within a white cartouche on orange and black lozengy.[2]


Melara Hetherspoon was a companion to Cersei Lannister. Together with Cersei and Jeyne Farman, she went to see Maggy the Frog during the Lannisport Tourney in 276 AC, to get a glimpse of their future, though Jeyne fled upon seeing the older woman. Melara asked whether she would marry Cersei's twin Jaime, but instead was told of her imminent death. She told Cersei that, if they did not speak of the prophecies made by Maggy, they would not come true. However, Melara later drowned in a well while Cersei overheard her cries, making her prophecy come true.[3][4][5]
